🗣️ It’s the day before the #TopsyTurvyWhatsMyLine mini writing challenge over on Instagram hosted by author Saffron Amatti and yours truly! My own D2D crew – comprised of Door to Door Paranormal Mystery and Bellerose Witchline characters – is meeting to discuss the “fun” they’ll be facing over the next seven days. Let’s listen in…
“Didn’t we just have a challenge?” Lucie grumped, retrieving a tray of sandwiches from her refrigerator. “I’m not ready to crawl through another one of Brown’s bright ideas.”
Tara set a stack of lunch plates on the counter. “I think they’re fun.”
“No!” Lucie and Tara discouraged in unison. Emily frowned.
“Anyhow,” Lucie tried again. “The guys have the details. They’ll be here any second.”
“Templeton?” Tara asked.
Lucie lifted a shoulder. “Maybe.”
Tara’s nose wrinkled. “Trouble in paradise?”
“I wouldn’t put Templeton in the same sentence as paradise,” Emily quipped as tapping came from the front of Lucie’s townhouse. She slid off her barstool. “I’ll get it.”
Lucie pulled bottles of Rooster Brew from her fridge when Emily returned with Rabbit and Big Rabbit.
“You made lunch!” Big Rabbit swiped an egg and olive sandwich from the tray. He paused, his cheeks pinking. “May I have one?”
“Have at it,” Tara directed, helping herself to a tuna on rye.
Rabbit and Lucie eyeballed each other before he stepped forward and pulled her into a big hug. “Been a while,” he said.
She nodded, her eyes glassy. “Brown can be a real –”
The pantry door opened silently as a scowling Templeton door traveled into the kitchen. His gaze flicked from Rabbit to Lucie. “Let’s get this over with. I have better things to do.”
Tara and Emily glanced at one another.
Big Rabbit revealed a packet of carnival passes. “Six tickets. We’re going tomorrow.”
“Six tickets,” Emily repeated. “Six of us. Good. No Sebastian.”
🗣️This mini challenge runs from June 21 – 27! Stay tuned as tomorrow the first prompt is: “How long have I been unconscious?” (That post is now available – click here!)
